a flight to make an emergency landing in japan. the head of the ntsb is now speaking out about the batteries and saying the investigation is far from over. dan springer live in seattle with the latest now. this battery, dan, it may have been dangerous even before the plane was certified to fly? >> reporter: yeah, jon. this issue's been out there a long time. now, boeing uses these 60-pound lithium ion batteries because they put a lot more power out than the standard batteries used on planes. but there were serious red flags dating back to 2006. this video has surfaced of a fire at a boeing contractor's lab near tucson, arizona. it was sparked when a lithium ion battery -- the same kind used in the dreamliner -- exploded during the test. a company makes the battery charger for the dreamliner, and we know ntsb investigators were back at this location this week testing the charger. the battery concerns prompted the faa to issue special rules for the installation of the batteries in the 787 of. investigators said yesterday the safety systems put in place by boeing definitely did no
of the secure a plane. we are told by the ntsb, they will be doing tests on the battery chargeert and apu controller, the engine near the back of the plane that power its when the engines are off. it was a lithium ion battery that turns on that engine that overheated and caught fire on the 787 at boston's logan airport. investigators said the battery had not been overcharged. but something led to it overheating. the japanese transportation officials are kuking their own investigation, focusing on the company that makes the batteries. a boeing source tells me the two batteries that overheat head serial numbers close together, but it appears unlikely that they were part of a bad batch. the planes were assembled a year apart. the boeing ceo sent employees a letter to employees saying he had complete confidence in the plane and the company would do everything possible to fix the electrical problems quickly and get the plane back in the air. they are confident this won't last long. boeing won't deliver any more 787s until the grounding is lifted and a norwegian air shuttle has been told to exp
is on the scene for us. alison, how did this happen? >> that's what crime scene investigators and ntsb are trying to figure out. there's going to be a press conference in minutes given by the ntsb. everyone is trying to figure out how this ferry carrying 300 passengers crashed into the dock in new york be city around 8:45's this morning. not only did it send passengers flying in the air inside this boat, it's caused a huge gash in the hull of the boat itself. the coast guard says a tracking device shows that this vessel was coming in too fast, that it was coming in up to 15 miles per hour, which the coast guard official says is too fast when you're docking a boat. we did talk with the head of the company who says that the captain who was at the control of this vessel was in control or in command of this vessel when it did crash hitting one loading dock and then hitting a second loading dock. this captain, by the way, has been with this company for about ten years. a breathalyzer was performed on the captain. it came back negative and preliminary breathalyzers were conducted on five crew members a
. >> reporter: piece by piece inside this ntsb lab in washington, analysts are dissecting the charred battery which caught on fire in a boeing 787 dreamliner earlier this month in boston. >> we know that the lithium ion battery experienced a thermal runaway. we no that there were short circuits, and we know that there was a fire. >> reporter: the faa gave special permission to boeing, allowing the use of these light weight batteries only if safety measures were installed to prevent overheating. >> we do not expect to see fire events on board aircrafts. there are multiple systems to protect against a battery event like this. those systems did not work as intended. we need to understand why. >> reporter: the investigation was launched after two 787s this month experienced issues surrounding the jet's unique use of lithium ion batteries. fais battery behind the wings of a japan airlines 787 exploded and caught fire while on the ground in boston. initial tests rule out excess voltage and overcharging. another battery problem, this one near the cockpit of an all nippon airways dreamliner led to sm

the ntsb is now starting to look at exactly the air worthiness issues, what was behind it, they've got investigation teams that are on their way to boston. and they're going to be asking the tough questions, wolf. they're going to want to know why brand-new aircraft, seemingly have recurring problems, albeit, of a different nature. are these the little glitches that boeing says they are, that happen with all new major complicated planes, or is there something else that's happening? there are lots of rumors, wolf, about whether the wiring has been done properly, whether this has been done properly or the other. so that's the issue at the moment. >> i assume, richard, there's been a backlash already, from the airlines that have spent hundreds of millions of dollars to purchase these dreamliners from boeing? >> yes. and the serious part about that is the airlines are used to glitches. so it's not like you or me, the airlines expect a certain amount of headache, toothache, pain and misery with a new plane, a new model. but they don't expect it to be of this level. aog is the phrase they us
its investigation. that from the ntsb. airlines around the world grounded the 787s after a pair of battery fires. one forced a flight to make an emergency landing in japan. the other caused a battery fire onboard a dreamliner after it landed in boston. the head of the ntsb said they identified some of the battery problems but still do not know the cause. >> we know the lithium ion battery experienced a thermal runaway. we know that there were short circuits and we know that there was a fire. the work that we continue to do will tell us why these things happened. we have a number of next steps. we are early in our investigation. we have a lot of activities to you know take. we're going to be completing those lab exams that we talked about with that incident battery, and documenting all of those. bill: she also told "the seattle times" she would expect the grounding to last months and not weeks. that's the last thing the company wants to hear. safe flying. a lot on the line. martha? martha: some new reaction to what is called the most far-reaching gun proposals in u.s. history but
and well. the plane remains submerged in the river. the ntsb is investigating what went wrong. the pilot did contact air traffic controllers and did make a may day distress call before that plane crashed. amazing stuff. >> listening to those tapes. my goodness. they survived half an hour in that water. >> almost half hour, yes. >> john, thanks so much. >>> we go to the west coast for a different kind of water threat. they're called sneaker waves. they strike suddenly. and they can sweep away the strongest swimmer. as neal karlinsky reports, a california woman is the latest victim. >> reporter: it's no surprise they're called sneaker waves. one look at the ones that have been captured on camera and you can see how suddenly they sweep in, knocking people hanging around otherwise peaceful shorelines off their feet. it's exactly what happened to 32-year-old susan archer, swept away sunday while working with her boyfriend, and their dog, trigger, along this northern california beach. >> you have to be careful of big waves. and we knew it. it just happened. >> reporter: tallerico said it was t
days have left the faa with no choice but to ground the dreamliner, while the ntsb analyzes the charred evidence from last week's 787 fire. lithium batteries are smaller and more powerful, but can overheat. >> when they're used normally, and the energy is released slowly as it's supposed to batteries have a very good safety record. but if that same energy is released very rapidly, the battery cells will vent release their contents and have the potential both for fire and explosion. >> reporter: boeing needed special faa approval to allow the dreamliner to use lithium batteries for key electrical systems. >> they have narrowed it down to the battery system on this aircraft. we've had two events and so therefore, they're going to now be able to look at it a little bit more in detail and figure out what's going on. >> boeing's european archrival, airbus uses lithium batteries only for emergency lighting in their air-380. but airbus' plane of the future, the air-350 due out by the end of next year, relies on them more heavily. the company says there are
has grounded the planes, listen to the ntsb's chairman who talks about how serious this incident now is. >> this is an unprecedented event. we are very concerned. as i mentioned in the beginning, we do not expect to see fire events onboard aircraft. this is a very serious air safety concern the faa has taken very serious action. >> reporter: and that, of course, feeds into how detailed and difficult it is going to be to actually put this problem right. they just don't know. >> richard, what are people saying there? do they think the dreamliner will be able to survive? >> reporter: i talked to one senior aviation official, international aviation official here. i asked exactly that question. yes is the short answer because we've seen it with the dc 10 and concord and other cases. what they have to do is find out what's wrong and put it right. the difficulty is the time and the expense in doing it. if it was a mature aircraft, that would be even a greater question. since it's a brand new plane with 800 orders still or 750 still to be delivered, there's no question that boeing is going t
and it was a model from the 1960s. the ntsb is investigating what happened. he says really it was a matter of minutes before that rescue could have turned into a recovery. wolf? >> they are both very, very lucky indeed. mary, thanks for that report. appreciate it very much. they are. >> so lucky. that instructor, what a hero in trying to get out of that plane. >> amazing. >> oh, my god. i have goosebumps thinking about how cold that water is. oh, my goodness. very, very lucky. >>> still ahead, here's a question for you. what do doughnuts and marriage proposals have in common? ponder that one. jeanne moos will have that next. ♪ good morning, turtle. ♪ my friends are all around me ♪ my friends, they do surround me ♪ ♪ i hope this never ends ♪ and we'll be the best of friends ♪ ♪ all set? all set.

to tokyo was canceled. we should also tell you the ntsb, the faa, as well as boeing and the airlines, they are all investigating the cause. >> i take it here too, this isn't the first time the dream liner has had a problem. >> you're absolutely right. in 2010, there was an emergency landing after a fire broke out in a different part of another 787 that was being tested. also, an engine failed in south carolina other the summer and in september, more engine problems, another aircraft, and just last month, wolf, a 787 diverted to new orleans due to mechanical problems. but because the investigation is still under way, boeing is saying it is just too early to tell if there's a common factor between today's fire and all of the previous incidents. however, we spoke to some experts and they tell us problems with new jetliners, that is not at all unusual. they say today's problem is serious. it needs to be addressed. but they add that planes are safe and problems like this, they get investigated and then they solve them. >> i'm ready to go up in one of those dream liners. it's exciting plan
